Did anyone else see the 1959 403 on the back of a trailer at the Castlemaine Swap Meet today? It was light blue with a white flash and a significant amount of rust down below. He was asking $200 and he confided that he didn't really want to tow it back to Kerang. His car pulling the trailer had complained a bit. Someone was going to get it fopr a greatly reduced price and if it didn't go off I suspect it was in danger of going to the tip. I had no way of rescuing it. My yard and nature strip cannot accomodate another car but I would love to have had it for a couple of days to do a major strip of useful bits and pieces. I should have got his name and phone number I suppose. Well that's another 403 likely to go out of circulation. Sad.
